The Home School Journey

I have home-schooled our children for 10 years now. I even home-schooled our oldest son all the way to college. When you home-school you never know what the day will bring. There are so many things going on in a life the day could change in an instant.   

One thing you do as a home-school family is study.  

And, boy do you study many, many things. Through the years my kids and I have studied: IchthyologyTheology, Economics, all the maths, Nato, English for 10 years now, American Literature, World Literature and the list just goes on and on and on.

Do you want to know what my favorite subject to study in school is? 

 ~ reading ~ 

This year my girl has started 5K. Now that she knows all her letters and their sounds  ~ it's time to put them together to create words. Real words! and we couldn't be more excited. The journey continues   


  1. The reading of books opens up a whole new enjoyable pastime we never outgrow.

  2. What a cute shot (and a very cute little girl)! God bless you for home-schooling. Even though I have a teaching degree, I'm not sure I could teach my own children!

  3. You are such a great Mama. Love this picture of your baby.

  4. What a sweet shot! & how rewarding it must be for you to be teaching your children :)
